Ryan Madson out at least eight weeks after toe surgery

Todd Zolecki tells us that Phillies erstwhile closer/set-up guy Ryan Madson will miss the next eight weeks after undergoing surgery on Monday to repair a broken right big toe, sustained after Madson kicked a chair after blowing a Save on Thursday in San Francisco.

This is obviously very bad news, as Madson is the Phillies' best (only decent?) relief pitcher.

The Phillies' bullpen, as currently constructed:

Brad Lidge, Jose Contreras, Danys Baez, J.C. Romero, Antonio Bastardo, David Herndon, Chad Durbin, Nelson Figueroa

I don't feel so good.
